Johannesburg: Stylish Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has now made it a habit to break records in every series. But he missed on another feat, when the right-hander was dismissed by JP Duminy for 96 runs on the fourth day of the first Test match against South Africa in Johannesburg.

Had Kohli scored four more runs, he would have become the only fourth Indian to score a century in each innings of a Test. Vijay Hazare, Sunil Gavaskar and Rahul Dravid are the only three Indian batsmen to have done so in the past.

Kohli followed his century in the first Test with another brilliant knock and he stitched a massive 222-run partnership for the third-wicket partnership with Cheteshwar Pujara that put India in a commanding position.

It is for the second time that Kohli has been dismissed in nineties in recent time, as he was dismissed on 99 against West Indies in the recently concluded ODI series.
